Rose 'Waterfall Collection' (Drift)

Rosa

Hardy Shrub

  • Mail Order Exclusive
  • The fragrant hanging basket rose

These sensational trailing roses have been specially bred for their lax, cascading habit which could easily rival fuchsias, begonias and other hanging basket favourites. Naturally dwarf plants bear clusters of beautiful double flowers with a glorious fragrance. Rose 'Waterfall Collection' are perfectly hardy with good disease resistance. Better still, they are repeat blooming so you can enjoy flowers throughout the summer with regular deadheading. Fill your containers, window boxes and baskets with something different this summer. Height: 25cm (10"). Spread: 30cm (12").


Companion planting: Try growing roses with garlic, chives, thyme or mint to help deter aphids and blackfly.


Culinary note: Some parts of these flowers are edible. For more details about edible flowers click here.

Pot up rose plug plants and grow them on in bright, frost-free conditions until they are fully rooted into their pots. When rose plants are well grown, acclimatise them to outdoor conditions over 7 to 10 days, prior to planting out in their final positions in window boxes, baskets and containers. Roses enjoy a rich, fertile, well drained soil. Mix a small handful of granular fertiliser to the compost prior to planting.

Feed and water rose plants regularly and deadhead faded flowers to encourage more blooms. When growing roses it is necessary to remove any suckers that arise from the base of the plant, below the graft union. Miniature roses are generally grown as annuals and replaced from year to year. However, they are perfectly hardy and may be left in containers for the following years display if required. In winter, begin pruning miniature roses by removing dead and diseased wood, and any rubbing or damaged branches. Then remove any twiggy growth and lightly shape the remaining stems. Apply a top dressing of well rotted manure or compost to the base of the plant after pruning.

  1. Poor

    By Alan Routley 06-04-2014

    Of the 6 six plants I received 2 of them where of the standard I would hope for, but the other 4 look dead with any leaves they have dried up, I’ve potted them up but have little expectation of them improving.

  2. Dissapointing

    By Peter Hay 02-04-2014

    Ordered these back in Sept 13 - arrived yesterday to find 2 plants were thriving, the third was pretty much dead - leaves had dried up, curled and dropped off and little/no sign of life. Doubt if it will recover. Wast of money I'm sorry to say on this occasion.
